“Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body, the Church. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble” (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 298).
Along with Holy Eucharist, Baptism is one of the two most important sacraments of the Church. Baptism is the sacrament of Christian initiation by which a person becomes a member of the Body of Christ. Whether old enough to speak for themselves, or infants for whom godparents speak, persons who receive Baptism vow to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior. These vows include regular participation in corporate worship, as well as a commitment to prayer and study as life-long practices.
If you are interested in receiving the sacrament of Holy Baptism for yourself or for a family member, please call the church office at (225) 926-5343, or contact Fr. Chris Golding at firstname.lastname@example.org.
